I had an episode of blood in my urine a while ago (gross haematuria) it varied from red/brown/black colour. It started 2 days after I felt unwell/offish I had a bit of stomach pain, felt very tired and slept a lot over 2 days. Then I noticed the blood in the urine which persisted for 10 days and alongside this I developed a cold. The urine sample I took to the doctors was very red he just frowned and said 'that's not right' then referred my to urology. He also did a Urine test and results showed haematuria. Blood pressure was normal and there was no UTI or kidney infection.
I had a camera in my bladder which showed normal results along with a kidney ct scan which was normal, no kidney stones. I was sure the blood was all to do with me feeling unwell and the cold. My go said Blood tests were normal although when I got a copy from reception glomerular filtration rate was a little low (there was a little mark next to it indicating low) but my gp said nothing of it so musnt have been worried. I was discharged from urology as they said that the ct scan was fine and said that the virus possibly affected my kidneys. I've not heard of a cold/illness causing blood in urine before though and when I read up on it myself found that there are some immune disorders that can cause blood in urine alongside a cold.
Just wondered has anyone experienced this and should I be a little worried or just totally forget it and put it down to a virus ?
Can a cold virus cause blood in the urine?
